For example, if General Motors paid a dividend of $0.50 in each of the four quarters last year, the indicated dividend suggests they will pay that same $0.50 in each of the four quarters in the subsequent year.

This is a rough forecasting technique and is usually represented by the letter "e" in stock tables.
